Thomas and Alton’s Story

I met Alton in one my clubs that I was working at as a promoter. We became friends and I knew she was special from the day I met her. We would meet in the city to hang out and party.We both were involved with other people at the time, so we were just friends, but we enjoyed spending time together and got along well. As the months went by our friendship continued and there came a time that we were both single again. We were cool and we had a lot of things in common. We decided to let ourselves grow together. We went into this relationship with no lies, only straight up truth, trust, and love for one another and for all others. We motivate one another day by day so that we can get to a bigger and better place mentally, spiritually and emotionally. We give each other the most respect possible and we have been together now for six months. She is my best friend and I believe that we compliment each other and have made each other better people by coming into each other’s lives.

Jody and Matt

We met in high school and were friends. We lost touch with each other after high school.Then I was working in Walmart one night and he got on my line. We exchanged phone numbers and rekindled our friendship. We went to college together for a while where I started to develop a crush on him. Then he gave me the news that he was moving to South Carolina from where we lived in Pennsylvania. I was hurt but I never told him how I felt. We stayed in touch and became really good friends. One day we were talking on the phone and he surprised me with the news that he was moving back home! I was excited and happy but too shy and scared to tell him how I felt. So, now he comes back and we are back in college together and we work together in the cafeteria. He washed dishes and I was a server, so the only time I got to see him was when I was bringing him dirty dishes. Well, I started making sure there were always lots of dirty dishes to bring him, even if I had to dirty them myself! [Read more…]
